Yes you heard me. Unity and Comet are months away from being released and yet they've started a new Assassin's Creed game.

It appears Ubisoft is well prepared to run this franchise into the dirt if needs be.

You realize it's been a yearly series for awhile, right? They have like 4-5 AC games in development at any one time. AC Unity began development 4 years ago when Revelations, 3, Liberation, and 4 were all in various development stages. 



I have never liked the AC franchise but no franchise deserved to be milked this fucking hard. It loses its charm after a while.

PSN ID: CaptainKurtz. Games regularly played: PSABR, Tekken TT2, SSX.

Faith is for the weak. 

There's demand for them, I don't see anything wrong with it.

 

                          

 

I don't see how this is bad. Unity was in development for 4 years, comet probably for some years as well.
I would be really worried if there wasn't another AC in development.

People complain about yearly sequels but completely ignore that all of these games had the same development times than other AAA games. That's the reason why they can maintain the high quality with each game.

I would be really happy if other developers had that kind of money and manpower to release my favorite franchises on a yearly basis.



I don't think that way, I just type that way.

My first bet.

I presume Unity and Comet are basically complete by now... so why wouldn't they start working on the next game?

I am in shock.

Anyway, as long as they are as good as AC2, ACB or AC4 I don't mind. I'm looking forward to this year's AC.

No troll is too much for me to handle. I rehabilitate trolls, I train people. I am the Troll Whisperer.

The more the better imo. The more AC games they have in development, the faster they can make their way through the list of historical time periods that remain. There are alot of fan favorite time periods left to do still, Feudal/Edo period Japan, Victorian London, Wild West, WW1, WW2, Ancient Egypt, Russian Revolution, British controlled India, South America during the time of the Conquistadors, Medieval China, Medieval Europe, and several more that have decent-large fan followings.

As long as they maintain the current level of quality by keeping the dev cycles long, I'm happy. The last couple of AC titles have all had 3 or more years of development, and they've all been good imo. The only AC game I didn't like was Revelations, and if I'm not mistaken it was the last AC game with only 2 years of development before they bumped it up to 3 or more.

Unity should be pretty close to being done, more than likely they're done making content and are just bug searching and optimizing now. Not sure about Comet since they still haven't officially announced it. I get the feeling they delayed it to make next-gen ports because they're anticipating low sales as a last-gen only game. They'll probably release it in Q1 next year across all platforms, probably as a cheaper downloadable game like AC Liberation HD was.

Wow, sooo many! I hope they realize that the demand will go down vastly if they milk it this hard
